News of the World Handicap


Interesting extract of a 1952 newspaper report listed on a Facebook account regarding the biggest crown green bowling competition of that era, the News of the World Handicap. The qualifying competitions were geographically based but just look at the number of Huddersfield entrants to the competition.


A record entry of 3,464, giving 433 qualifiers for the neutral green stage has been received for the 'News of the World' Handicap. Last year's figure was 2,648 entries with 330 qualifiers.

Huddersfield head the list with 1,560 entries and the 195 qualifiers will be reduced to seven in eliminating rounds on seven greens next Saturday.
